Consumer Alert: Divinenoni

There's a sponsored link on Facebook for a product called "Divinenoni".

I have no problem with fruit juices, they're good for you. However I DO have a problem when they make absurd, reckless and criminal claims.

If you click on the link you go to the Divinenoni Facebook group the claims become a little bit more extraordinary. Rather than just a fruit juice it becomes a product that "improves the efficacy of the Medicine":


As you can see there's a link to the cancertutor.com web site which makes this extraordinary claim:


On that very same web page the authors make the most dangerous medical claim I've read in a very long time.


Let me be perfectly clear. The Divinenoni Facebook page links directly to this claim. There is no evidence whatsoever that noni juice has any effect on cancer in humans. This is dangerous, criminally irresponsible nonsense. It is illegal to make such claims in Botswana and the rest of the world. Encouraging people to stop their medical treatment and to drink magical fruit juice instead is a criminal offense committed by criminals.

P.S. I've posted a question on the Facebook group so see if they stand by their claim.


For some facts on noni juice see the Wikipedia page which links to a various warnings that have been sent to marketers of this nonsense.

That website is pushed by a guy called "Kehr" who operates this "institute" from his house in the middle of nowhere:

And here's Google Maps of his location... he doesn't even have a paved driveway
